: expert defense expert back on the stand to jodi areas could commit she stabbed her ex-boyfriend and slit his throat she doesn't remember doing it. psychologist told the jurors in her long lasting murder trial she has a severe type of amnesia caused by something dreadful like a killing. the psychologist testified for the defense last week that jody areas memory loss. she claims she killed her ex in self-defense. although that admission came two years after his death and long after she changed her story a couple of times. prosecutors insist the plan that she planned that rah tack and then carried it out in a fit of jealous rage. going at areas psychologist when samuel until a damning moment. admitted that jodi areas had lied on a test to prove she was suffering from ptsd. >> you used it and then concluded that those scores on that pts confirm the presence of ptsd even though you just now told us this is based on a lie. >> perhaps i should have re-administered that test. >> then the session went on like that. martin is looking very intent on discrediting the defense witness. >> has this def
left kooks do want to cut one thing, defense spending. they want to bring that back down to 2006 level. somewhere in iran is cheering. there comes a point when americans are going to have to decide what country, what kind of country they want. even taking half of what affluent americans earn, feds couldn't possibly afford what the far left wants to provide. so we would eventually become greece or cyprus if the u.s. dollar collapses and people stop lending us money. some conservatives believe that's exactly what the far left wants. a collapse of the entire capitalistic system. some on the right believe that president obama is actively working toward that. certainly senator bernie sanders of vermont wants socialism in this country and so do most of his compatriots on the crazy caucus. yet, americans continue to elect them. that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. reaction. joining us from lower manhattan dr. marc lamont hill who teaches at columbia university. do you think the program the caucus is putting forth will ever happen in this country? >> no. i think that's a template fo
program. you also have the great cooperation between our two governments on the iron dome, missile defense system which is no longer theory, we've seen it work and save lives and reduce the risk to people in israel. so i think it's more important what they do together than whether or not they have a personal relationship. frankly, i think some of the reporting on this is a little bit inaccurate. but that's of less significance. >> you mean in terms of their personal relationship? >> yeah, i think it's blown out of kind of -- sometimes the journalism in this takes the form of some psychology analysis. i really don't think that's the key thing. what we do together and i think that's what they'll be discussing and i'm sure they'll be able to have a good discussion. and this is a critically important time because of the threat posed by iran's nuclear program. we've got to stop that. we've made a very clear determination now that -- and i mean we meaning the congress and the administration that containment is not good enough that we've got to make sure we prevent nuclear weapons capability, ope
is inspect the iron dome battery system. as you can see right there. this is the defense shield that was so successful only in november of last year as israel was able to defend itself against incoming rocket fire from gaza. the u.s. spent $6 million over three years on the system. it is expected to reaffirm its commitment to israel and the iron dome program. >> thanks so much for that. the pentagon is launching an investigation into the safety of tars following an explosion monday night on a base in nevada. this morning the military confirms eight marines have died and six injured. >> reporter: this evening veterans and civilians alike joined together at a memorial service to honor the soldiers lost and those wounded in an explosion during a training exercise on monday at the hawthorne army depot in november. >> it's strange you go overseas to fight and you come back home and get killed. the soldiers were taking part in mountain warfare training at the hawthorne army depot. a mortar round exploded in a mortar tube. >> we don't know what caused this malfunction. >> reporter: typically a 60

. is he going to war with iran in defense of a country -- that is what netanyahu has to worry about. if to publicly treat netanyahu that way it weakens his opposition in middle east because the allies see how we treat the main allies and discourages allies. >> sean: if you are netanyahu and i see obama giving f-16s, tanks, $1.5 billion to the former head of the muslim brotherhood, mohammed morsi who think the israelis are descendants of apes and pigs, i know what i would be thinking? >> we can control with the egyptian military. >> sean: the military leadership has been changed by morsi. his puppets are in charge? >> we can control it but no rationale for a pegs and morsi the fact is things he has said insults he has toward the israelis and jews and whole attitude, all of that. it goes back to when we threw mubarak under the buses. >> sean: and what happened to the arab spring it was an arab nightmare. i was on the air every night. ambassador bolton were there. there were v some of us and article said i was muslim brotherhood obsessed. how couldn't other people see this coming? >> b
billion on air-conditioning in iraq and afghanistan. >> in 2002, richard pearl, chairman of the defense policy board said "we're not talking about a massive invasion along the lines of '91. we're talking about a much more modest effort in which the united states will assist iraqis in freeing their country." let me get over to paul about the manpower and loss of lives. and the world you live with. 31,000 wounded. about 600 amputees. give me a sense of your own personal experience with what the personal cost of this war was. besides the loss of 4,000 american service people? >> we didn't see too many of those air conditioners. when i was in iraq, i lost friends. we lost colleagues. we saw a lot of carnage and destruction. and i think the real untold story is the price we're going to pay for generations to come. a million veterans, including myself, served in iraq and are now home. and we all know that there was a real shortage of planning on the ground in iraq. they didn't have enough interpreters. didn't have enough body armor. didn't have enough humvees. there's a shortage now on the ho
the defense of marriage act which is one of the cases it will be hearing this week which bans federal benefits for same sex couples legally married in their state. would you streak down that as federal interferences in a state matter? >> you know, i think it is a really complicated issue. i always said that the states have the right to decide. i do believe in traditional marriage. kentucky decided it and i don't think the federal government should tell us otherwise. there are states that have decided in the opposite fashion and i don't think the federal government should tell anybody or any state government how they should decide this. marriage has been a state issue you for hundreds and hundreds of years. doma is complicated because it does provide protection for the states from the federal government part of it federalizes the issue. there is a chance the court could strike down the federalization part of it. if they do i think the way to fix it is maybe to try to make all of the laws more neutral towards the issue. i don't want the government promoting something i don't believe in you but i
what the impact of the sequestration is going to be on the budget. the department of defense, because we've had no budget out of harry reid and the democrats on the senate side for four years, we've been operating on continuing resolutions. when you have continuing resolution that takes the previous year funding levels and you have to request changes. frankly it's cost the american taxpayer hundreds of millions of dollars and had an impact but it belongs on harry reid's seat. >> neil: commander. thank you. i think harry reid needs lanny davis, five rules with coping for crisis in business, politics and life. among them is talking straight, right? >> harry reid has a very good heart and i am sorry that the commander jumps to impugning motives rather than disagreeing with the way senator reid did it. i would call it a gaffe. >> neil: you think he was making an incorrect link? >> i don't think he meant to. he's too good of a man. >> neil: he mentioned it in the context of the soldiers and -- not good and crisis management rule number 1 is when you make a mistake, you immediately say i di
and pretty much zeroing out defense spending and all sorts of things. it seems like they don't even know about him. but unless rand paul becomes the nominee, what would lead to any real policy changes in the next presidential republican candidacy? >> robert is right. policy changes aren't going to be driven by the republican national committee, they're driven by the candidates for president next round. certainly if you look at one of the recommendations was we had too many debates and the primary season was too long. i come from the school there's no such thing as a bad question, only bad answers. we had a lot of bad answers on a debate stage that on any given night resembled a reality show. that's what part of the problem is. one of the things as a republican that gives you hope, you look at some of the people to solve the leadership deficit, chris christie, marco rubio, we have a cast of characters for the 2016 race that's different than the cast of characters in the 2012 race, so i think there's a little silver lining in that for republicans. >> let's listen to what jay carney had to
defense education loans i was in the peace corps, changed my lives. my father worked for the city of philadelphia. i have no problem with public service. that's where i'm at. that's how i got here. your party says that's degraded. i got a 47% because my father is on a g.i. bill and ended up on social security. what's wrong with government? >> look it -- >> good for most people. am i addicted to government? >> first of all, as a country, particularly to washington they're addicted to spending. we created this massive point -- >> you're on there. that's your winning -- you got the win card right there. >> manufacturing, obama says those jobs are gone forever. >> he does not say that, actually. >> when did he say that? >> president obama did not say that. >> we've got to admit those jobs are gone. >> no. >> some. >> he worked hard to bring back manufacturing. >> perhaps most typical -- let's get back to our report. reince priebus, it's about communication but the party never tried to stop to distant franchise, mainly poor african-american voters since the last election. stricter phot
to cut the democrbudg deficits and cut defense spending and simplify the tax code and lower tax rates. in a deal with president obama they could get the first four, more deficit reduction, protect defense, the democratic president would get some cover in cutting medicare and social security and they could simplify the tax code by taking out expenditures. they are now saying they want none of those things and also not going to get the tax rates and keep the sequester and not have a deal. i've asked a lot of them to walk me through the reasoning here and honestly never come to an answer i understand a little bit. >> does that mean they're post policy. even some things that seem like constants don't actually a matter them, it's pure politics, just positioning themselves v a vis-a-vis the president and not interested in a particular outcome for the country? >> i would like to have an answer where that isn't true. i really would. i've been trying to find it. i'm sure part is i'm not smart enough to do so or found the right people to have spoken to them. it's hard to come up with one. we c
people. they called it an act of self-defense but for nearly three years, israel and turkey, two of america's closest allies, have been in a war of words. that is, until today. in an unexpected move of sheer diplomacy, the president orchestrated a ten-minute phone call on the tarmac in tel-aviv. israel prime minister benjamin netanyahu called turkey's prime minister and apologized for that deadly raid, apologized for nine deaths and vowed to pay their family. at one point mr. obama, just before leaving for jordan, got on the phone with both leaders and they spoke. one senior american official said, this is obama diplomacy at work. the leaders agreed to restore normal relations. so that is real, tangible success and it shows the success of the trip. but then there are symbolic successes. today he went to former israeli prim minister's grave. he was assassinated by an extremist. as is customary in a jewish tradition, he placed a stone on the grave but this stone had powerful symbolism. it came from the martin luther king memorial in washington. the president, connecting one civil r
's meetings and appearances have been very carefully orchestrated. he will check out the iron dome air defense missile launcher partially funded by the united states. he'll visit the dead sea scrolls at the israel museum in jerusalem to show he believes in the ancient jewish connection to israel. he'll lay a wreath at a zionist visionary theater tomb as well as slain prime minister's its ak rabin's grave. the president will have several meetings and working dinner with newly re-elected prime minister benjamin netanyahu. of course, no secret that the relationship between these two leaders hasn't always been a warm one. besides discussing peace between israel and palestine what a-- oe of the other major topics is iran's nuclear program. the president encouraged their leaders to move toward peace. >> now is the time for the iranian government to take immediate and meaningful steps to reduce tensions and work toward an enduring, long-term settlement of the nuclear issue. >> i want to bring in matt welch editor-in-chief of "reason" magazine and mckay copins. good to see both of you. >> thank you so
the day after 9/11 secretary of defense donald rumsfeld is already looking to link saddam hussein and osama bin laden. >> meeting notes from the afternoon of 9/11, show donald rum fells tasking a top aide to find the best information fast, good enough to hit saddam hussein. he asks the aide to get evidence from wolfowitz of a saddam connection with ubl. >> we all looked at each other like what are they talking about? who the hell? saddam hussein? bin laden hates him. there is no connection between saddam hussein and al qaeda. >> again, "hubris" airs tonight at 9:00 p.m. you don't want to miss that. >>> turning now to business, good news and bad news. investors head into the final trading day of the week. major indices posted their biggest losses in over three weeks thursday. but for the month, all three major u.s. markets are still up about 2%. on thursday, cyprus inspired selling picked up despite decent weekly jobless claims and another dose of good housing data. >>> meanwhile, bankers continue to protest and panic depositors flock to atms in cyprus as they face a monday dead tl
it was senator coburn who offered it -- to end a program in the department of defense where they are buying biofuel at some extraordinary amount, $35 a gallon -- he said, you know, here's a place where you can save money. he pointed to the u.s. foreign aid program had created a -- i think it was a $27 million program in morocco to teach moroccans how to do pottery. moroccans have been doing pottery about 5,000 years. couldn't we go through as paul ryan said -- and at least agree to cut out the really dumb stuff? >> some of the stuff, it's ideology. speaker boehner says no more tax increase at the end of the year that the president got. he says, you know, absolutely no. you know, are the republicans going to have to give on the taxes? >> well, i think it depends on what happens. i personally don't believe that we are under taxed. i mean, you look at the economy right now, between regulation and taxes, this economy is a mess. you compare this economy tovill exactly the same psyche nel reagan's presidency, where we have 5, 6, 7, 8% a quarter. >> are you saying that should be a line in the sand
, will be hearing arguments on two landmark cases. the federal defense of marriage act or doma and proposition 8. so what can next week mean for politicians? mark murray is standing by. so mark, if the court strikes down these laws, do you think that could potentially help politicians in both parties? >> i think you could see more governors, more state legislatures feel like they might have free reign for gay marriage in their states. craig, i will say you're already seeing such a rush on this in states with democratic control. and the change in attitudes has been striking. in our own "wall street journal" poll, 30% of the country supported gay marriage in 2004. that is now a majority. 51%. so a full 20 or more percentage points increase in just nine years. that's amazing in social attitudes and in american politics. >> it kind of reminds me, when roe v. wade happened, a lot of politicians could say this is settled law. so you don't have to spend a great deal of time engaged in debates with a potential political opponent over it. if the court, if it keeps these laws intact, how could that complicate
up information on potential victims. the defense team insists he was just fantasizing and didn't act on his thoughts saying no women were hurt. the case is cause to debate on whether or not defendants should be convicted based on intent. joining me is the cohost of the five kimberly guilfoyle who was assistant district attorney in san francisco. kimberly, if you had your role as a district attorney still going on this case came before you, would you you prosecute is in the same way? >> i would. i think this is a creative prosecution. these are the types of cases could be tough to get a defendant on. this is someone that they really truly believe is a menace to society, is dangerous and should be put away. the key is how do you go about doing it lawfully. what laws has the man broken. the defense will say this was a thought crime. you you can't prosecute someone for their thoughts he didn't act it out. the law you does not allow someone to sit there and fanta advertise aboufantasize about n commit the act and then prosecute them. the whole idea is to get them before they commit the cr
is a common pastime of republican politicians who attacked this president's choice for secretary of defense as somehow being an enemy of israel. it is a common past time for fox news commentators and other right wing pundits. they would have shouted down this president for saying what he was about to say, and they would have claimed that their shouting was all in defense and support of the people of israel. the president chose today to speak directly to the people of israel, including that heckler, about the hopes and dreams and, yes, the rights and fair expectations of the palestinian people. and not only did he not get booed for that, he was cheered for speaking to the israeli people about the palestinian people. the strongest cheers he got in his speech today surely much to the discomfort of benjamin netanyahu, were all for his vision of the future for israelis and for the palestinian people. >> given the demographics west of the jordan river, the only way for israel to endure and thrive as a jewish and democratic state is through the realization of an independent and viable palestine. t
to shape the debates of our time, not only with the votes we cast but with the voices we lift in defense of our most ancient values and enduring ideas. >> he talked about us shaping the debate. is that resonating, angela? >> i think it is resonating. there's a natural, organic evolution. the constitution was written years ago and most of us see the constitution as a living, breathing document. there are all types of things that we can do to ensure that we are creating change long term. the president has continued to push that. we saw her even do that across the ocean in israel. so when you look at the different things we can do as a people, it isn't just about the vote. it is also about the voice and for republicans, more often than not. >> support of gay marriage, as you mention, currently 58%, that's up 26 points since 2004 and 81% approval rating among those 18 to 29. now, your father came out in support of same sex civil unions back in 2009. why has the party, in your opinion? >> i think there's a conservative right movement as we've seen take over the party in the last few years and
boong gay marriage, prop 8 will be argued. then wednesday, justices will hear about the defense of marriage act, 1996 law saying federal agencies must define marriage between one man and one woman. supporters of traditional marriage are already warning about cultural changes that could accompany laws that permit same-sex marriage. >> it's about altering all of society. with marriage goes what our children are taught, parents losing the right to define the morals for our children. it's about religious freedom. two are intertwined and conduct your business as you see fit. >> reporter: support for legal same-sex marriage has grown but the latest poll shows less than half 49% of registered voters now favor it. still one attorney arguing for marriage equality that week is predicting a win for his side. >> the constitutional right to marry is well established. in fact the supreme court has ruled that you can't take away the right to marry even from imprisoned felons. you can't take it away from those people because it's so important, such a fundamental right of liberty. >> reporter: w
to the defense of israel. >> i don't think he is aiming so much to the israeli government but the israeli government. this time the president shows up. he is stronger and just won re-election and netanyahu is weaker. had he a weak showing in the elect shu and had trouble forming a government, so the president is going over his head. he wants to begin a dialogue with the israeli people and show the united states is a friend of israel and show also that israel taking more risks for peace than netanyahu has been willing to support is a good idea. this is the beginning of a long conversation. >> all right. here with us now from jerusalem, nbc chief foreign affairs correspondent, andrea mitchell. given all we have talked about and the constraints and years this has been in the making what is the white house hoping to accomplish on this trip? >> they have accomplished already what they hope to accomplish and do more with the speech today, reaching over the heads, as you've just been pointing out, to the israeli people and especially to israeli youth. but one of the blogs on the jerusalem post t

an op-ed from former president bill clinton backing an overturn of the defense of marriage act. a few days before the supreme court will look at both doma, defense of marriage act, and california's prop 8. it also puts her in line with top democrats heavily weighing 2016 bids, of course. could this mean a move for her already, eventual candidacy? chad griffin, president of human rights campaign, and joan walsh editor at large for "salon" and msnbc political analyst and laughing, and joyously involved in fascinating conversation. i watched the clintons and am a student of the clintons. bill clinton wrote a nice piece. now hillary clinton has come forward in a very well-produced video. very well done. and i listened to it all today and it's well done. here's my question. how did it happen? we were talking, the producers and i, when is she going to do it, how is she going to do it? now we know. >> i've known the clintons for a long time. i grew up in arkansas. over the last few years every chance i had when i was around people in leadership positions, i urged them to fully evolve and com

security hot spots. the findings came out of a 2012 panel of white house advisors including now defense secretary chuck hagel. agencies like the cia are ignoring places like china and the middle east to instead focus on current military operations and drone strikes. advisors say operations have been side lined by more than a decade of conflict dating back to just after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. the white house has not commented publicly on the report but recent remarks from some top officials suggest they share the panel's concerns. >>> north korea issues a new threat to the united states. the country says they will waste no time attacking american military bases in japan and on the island nation of guam if they're provoked. those threats come a day after the leader ran a mock drone strike on south korea and prepped for a possible air raid. pyongyang stepped up the rhetoric in recent days over hostile on going military drills between south korea and the u.s. although north korea is believed to lack the technology to carry out such an attack, washington is deploying more arsenal to cou
in this region. just yesterday the president toured the iron dome system, that's israel's air defense shield system. it is built by the israelis but largely paid for by the u.s. the u.s. will spend more than $600 million over three years supporting that system. it's viewed really this effort as one by hamas. the rivals to the palestinian authority in the west bank to try to disrupt any future peace talks. on that front, even as we speak right now, behind closed doors president obama is visiting with the palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas w. the conversation, of course, is really an opportunity for the president to listen. he did not come here with any new peace plan, no effort to relaunch the peace talks at this time. but i hopes that the conversation now will help him be in a better position to do so going forward. the entire visit is really designed on this day to for the president to reaffirm his commitment to israel in this region. he said in his own language, we have your back about iran. he said he will do whatever is necessary to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons. h

depending on which report you read fleeing there. one of rebels seized one of the major defense bases which is near the jordanian border. how do you think it will affect his relationship with king abdullah? >> in this regard, they don't want a lot of blood on this. president obama understands that the syrian situation could get a lot worse. all of various groups fighting assad of syria. they want assad to go. they also potentially bring that violence across the border from syria into lebanon and most particularly into jordan. i think obama was trying to have a better relationship with king abdullah of jordan. unlike other parts of arab spring where they are willing to let kings fall but with abdullah he has to support him and give him the kind of assistance he needs especially to deal with the refugees. problem with refugees they rarely come alone. there will be fighters that want to bring the fight to jordan. >> arthel: that makes it so complicated. i was in istanbul, turkey and i was talking to a guy from syria. he was saying that want president obama to arm the rebels, opposition forces.
hell lin miron playing linda baden. she is married to dr. michael baden who testified for the defense in the first trial. edward losi on your right. a well known publicist in town who knew the victim well and he is fighting mad about the entire hbo project. first edward, become both of you gentlemen. edward, why are you angry with the movie which purports to be fact-based? >> geraldo, first off, lana clarkson was not phil specter's girlfriend. she didn't even know him three hours before he murdered her. so for the correction. >> geraldo: wait, that was their first date? >> yeah. >> geraldo: that was their first date? i did not know that. >> so this hbo film it murders the truth like phil specter murdered lana. it as scam on the american public. this is a shameful situation. shame on david for writing this. shame on barry levinson for making a quick buck on it and shame most of all on the hbo executives who greenlighted this. it has nothing to do with the truth. but it also brings an insult to our dear friend lana clarkson and that is why i'm here. the friends are lana clarkson made up
to defense. i think this is an example where they're beating the social conservatives who aren't ready for a shift in gay marriage. opposition within the party to gay marriage is substantial and they don't want a more liberalized immigration policy. so the one thing that is still here is low taxes, including on the wealthy, and deep cuts to government. i think that is a fundamental problem for the party. it cause them problems with all kinds of groups. there is only so much you can do when you change the language as long as you hold on to the tax and spending cuts policies. >> you touched on immigration policy. i think lawmakers in washington on the republican side see it as essential to change on immigration. john mccain, marco rubio, et cetera, are all behind that. the rank and file folks are not behind that at all. they've been sole this line this is amnesty. these people are takers for years. when you have somebody like ann coulter go to cpac and say i'm a one issue voter against amnesty. that continues to fuel the anti-compassionate potential for immigration reform. how are they g
for overturning the defense of marriage act in 1996 which he signed into law. it seems to be lately every few days there is a top ranking politician who come out in favor of same sex marriage on either side of the aisle. what is the likelihood we'll see more of this over the next weeks and months? >> well, even the rnc autopsy that came out today hinted at this being a potential issue that needed to be addressed by republicans. i do think that you're in the middle of history. you're seeing the aircraft carrier kind of turn on this. and has gone very quickly in just the last five years. and it all goes directly to polling. if you, i hate to be cynical about it but politicians move very easily when it looks like it is a popular issue. and it has become much more favorable to be in favor of same sex marriage, rather than being against it. it provides a lot more cover for politicians who might have been leaning that direction to now be able to say that they're for it. >> good to see you. >> thanks. >>> time for the news nation gut check. we told you earlier about the republican national committee's au

? >> well, i think he wants to make it very clear he's going to make steps about israel's self-defense especially with respect to the iranian nuclear program. he's not going to ask for permission from the united states first. i think the two countries remain very far apart how they judge what iran is up to. i believe that the president believes that diplomacy can succeed and i think he's so desperate for a diplomatic outcome he's made proposals that would legitimize the iranian program, which is the worst of all. and publicly beneficial for both sides, nobody should think this really represents a solution of the fundamental disagreements about how to approach security issues in the middle east. >> ambassador, thank you, sir. >> thank you. >> greta: and today, president obama saying the u.s. is investigating whether chemical weapons have been used in syria. we asked senator lindsey graham whether the u.s. should do anything else in syria. >> in syria, you think it's time? >> the day after assad leaves, the biggest fear is where do the chemical weapons go? remember what happened in libya
relationships. the fact that they got clear understandings on iran, on the right of self-defense, israel, the u.s. will not tolerate nuclear weapons in iran. the discussion on syria. i think most importantly the connection with the israeli people which seems to have succeeded to possibly move toward the negotiation on an israeli/palestinian effort. the two-state solution. i think it has been a successful visit. >> what did you make of the speech this morning? >> the speech was lovely. that relationship has been frayed for so long that humor goes some distance. the proof of the pudding will be in the eating. ntsb next few days, if netanyahu authorizes more settlements, we'll know the relationship remains frayed. at least the president went more than halfway. he went all the way from washington to jerusalem. he went there with his arms open. it is now up to netanyahu to respond. the power of the president is not something to be sneered at. now is it depends on the people on the other side of the table. >> you seem like you might be skeptical. >> i am. i've covered the middle east for many, many y
three billion dollars has been in aid to israel to their defense systems there. 275 million for the iron dome. >> sean: i got that. let me ask a question, joe trippi. wait a minute. >> every step of the way we've been there and said he won't let iran have a nuclear weapon. they don't have one yet. >> sean: is it a mistake to give the former terrorist head of the muslim brotherhood, mohammed morsi, f-16 tanks 1.5 billion taxpayer dollars, is that a mistake, joe trippi? >> i don't know if it's a mistake or not. >> sean: so what do you think, bill cunningham. >> we can't afford 6th graders on spring break going through the white house and we ship terrorists like morsi, hundreds of millions of dollars, tanks and f-16's. they're going to use them to kill israelis, we're supplying the weapons to kill israelis and that's a nobel peace prize winner. that's one way to look at it, bill, on the other hand it's been egypt and the enforcement of the peace agreement with egypt-- >> that was under mubarak. >> right, and what we know is so far the muslim brotherhood has kept that in place. so-- >> no, n
of the time frame as well as defenses, intelligence, military cooperation so that the eranians understand there is a common belief between the united states and israel in terms of preventing, not containing, preventing iran from becoming a nuclear weapon. what president obama was hoping to receive from prime minister netanyahu, in fact he got it was endorsement of the american plan to prevent iran from having a nuclear weapon. >> do you see it the same way? >> i think what obama did was bought himself some time. remember, there's a lot of opposition inside the israel establi establishment anyway. a test will really come if the u.s. gets close to a diplomatic deal with iran, would this israeli government support any diplomatic deal the united states could get with iran. >> why does it matter if we get a deal not to go nuclear with weapons, why does it matter if israel that? >> because a lot of republicans would be opposed to it. >> how would that hurt our government. >> if there is a deal, we have to give on something, not a complete capitulation from iran, some gestures towards lifting sa
